Laura Hollis grew up in San Francisco on Russian Hill and was an Art Major in Junior High and High School and then attended the Rudolph Schaffer School of Color and Design on Potrero Hill. She stills enjoys San Francisco and lives and works in Noe Valley.
Laura has worked in water color and now expresses herself in fluid acrylics. Her present body of work are collages which consist of fragments and pieces that speak to her at the moment. In her abstract collages she strives to create a purity and ease of artistic expression. Most of her work imparts a serenity, a calmness through blending of colors, tones, and form. Although Laura gravitates toward subtlety, she also likes to work with a deeper darker palette where one finds vividness and excitement along with a sense of harmony.
Her work has been on display at Private Art Salons in SF, The Fort Mason Art Fair, Soma Gallery, Marin Society Garden Center, University Club, Noe Valley Ministry, Unitarian Church, Arden Wood, and the Thoreau Center. Currently she participates in the monthly shows at SFWA and has received many Merit Awards dating back to the '90s.
Laura has been an active member of SFWA for over 20 years and has been Vice President and President. One can view her work on the SFWA website sfwomenartists.org or stop by SFWA 3489 Sacramento Street.
